The Pagan Babies were a short-lived American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed by Kat Bjelland and Courtney Love circa late 1985. Bjelland, who later became the frontwoman for the successful punk rock band, Babes in Toyland, and Love, who later became the controversial frontwoman of the successful alternative rock band Hole, had already been members in an unsuccessful project, Sugar Babydoll, who were based in Portland, Oregon and played a similar musical style to the Pagan Babies.

The band only lasted a few months, and only in their career played two shows at house parties, which were described as little more than "hanging out and having fun."
